During the last hundred years, the publishing houses have printed millions different books about how to achieve success. Why then have I had the temerity to write another book about How to achieve success? And after I have written it, why should you bother to read it?
Fair questions, both; and are answered in this book.
Compared to what we ought to be, said the famous Professor William James of Harvard, compared to what we ought to be, we are only half-awake. We are making use of only a small part of our physical and mental resources. Stating the thing broadly, the human individual thus lives far within his limits. He possesses powers of various sorts which he habitually fails to use.
Those powers which you habitually fail to use! The sole purpose of this book is to help you discover, develop and profit by those dormant and unused assets.
Education, said Dr John G. Hibben, former President of Princetown University, education is the ability to meet lifes situations. If by the time you have finished reading this book if you arent then a little better equipped to meet lifes situations, then you shall consider this book to be the total failure, so far as you are concerned. For the great aim of education, said Herbert Spencer is not knowledge but action.
And this is an action book, your life personal journal on How to achieve what you want in life.
Success leaves clues and those clues are contained in this book.
You will find that the How part of success its easy to achieve if your Why is clear.
Easy is anything that can be done and you must be willing to pay the price.
So lets go. Lets get down to brass tacks at once.
